Hi all,

I'm happy to announce BzrTools 2.5.0

This version is intended to be compatible with the 2.5.x Bazaar
series.  BzrTools is a plugin that provides miscellaneous useful and/or
frivolous functionality for bazaar.

Due to brainfarts, it is referred to as bzr 2.5 in some places.

- - Fix compatibility with final beta before bzr 2.5
- - Remove rspush command due to deprecation of Branch.revision_history

I thought this was going to be just another boring version number
update, but there were actually compatibility problems to fix.  What's
more, Branch.revision_history is now deprecated.

It's probably long past time to deprecate it, since it's not efficient
with current branches.  Still, it was used by rspush.

Being so old, rspush was lightly tested, so I don't feel confident
updating it and re-running the tests.  It has no users, as far as I
know.  Removing it seems to make the most sense, but I do feel nostalgic.

rspush was some of the earliest code in bzrtools, and pre-dates the
"push" command.  It was actually named "push" at one point.  At that
time, branches were always standalone, so "pushing" via rsync made
sense.  Nowadays, I don't think it's needed.
